Houston, TX - Injury Crash on W Sam Houston Pkwy near Briar Forest Dr

Auto collisions take place far too often in the Lone Star State. Information gathered from recently compiled statistics concerning the crash rate in Texas state that approximately one crash occurs every two minutes that result in injuries. On average, there are around 270,000 injuries reported per year due to these accidents. Although we hope for the recovery of all injured parties, more than 3,600 lose their lives yearly due to fatal accidents in the Lone Star State.

Thousands of these accidents occur in Houston alone, which is the largest city in Texas. Houston, being the fourth-largest city in the US and the largest in Texas, has an extremely high population, which has to do with its high crash rate. Thousands of injuries result from these wrecks, and sadly, thousands of deaths. If you or someone you love has recently been injured in an auto accident in Texas, you are not alone.
